Megaloaf

Submitted by: ROCKETNUT

Introduction

Definitely too many calories for everyday fare, but a good vegetarian alternative to meat dishes on holidays - my mother-in-law used to make this for me every Thanksgiving since I married into the family almost 30 years ago, and now that she's allowing me to help cook the meal, it's become my job. A full serving is alomost 300 calories, but the omnivores in my family like it so much that they have it as a side dish (smaller portions, so fewer calories) - you'll definitely want to make enough for both vegetarians and omnivores - I'm the only vegetarian in the family, and I restrict myself to one serving, but this recipe always somehow disappears!

  • I loved this! I modified it to be more cholesterol friendly by using egg whites and fat free cheddar. I don't usually use fat free cheese, and I'm sure it's not as tasty, but this was delicious to me and I will be adding it to my regular arsenal of recipes. - 11/28/10
